These are the two areas I am looking at getting 457 sponsorship as a radiographer! I'm a 33 year old male and although I really enjoyed my short holiday to the gold/coast brisbane I do have concerns, partly from reading this board, that it is a great place to bring up a family. However, what about myself for meeting like minded single dwellers? It is all very well being stuck in paradise but is there enough to keep me occupied in Brisbane/Gold coast? melbourne does appeal to for its more hectic lifestyle but I believe it is more expensive to live and the weather is more changeable! Any advice/thoughts on this matter would be great - thank you. Aaron.
